Had a great time flying. HUGE lift everywhere most of the time. Jim and Jon somehow knew it was my birthday and let me win most of the AULDs .

Happy B Day big Jon!!!!!

That was a great lunch time flip off.

Sorry about all the air traffic. It has been a real problem lately! I am not sure what exactly they are after.

Well, I was just going on where you had me take you last year, but whatever.

We will sorely miss you and all the other slackers from the hometeam down in AZ!

Definition of BROWNOUT

1a : omission of occurrence or performance; specifically : a failing to perform a duty or expected action <failure to control an rc aircraft> b (1) : a state of inability to perform a normal function <no servo response> — compare CRASH (2) : an abrupt cessation of normal functioning <Spektrum in DLG> c : an expensive condition usually caused by voltage issues which result in a receiver loosing output capability resulting in a crash<El Crappytan> usually the receiver reboots after the crash and the broken plane is found to be fully responsive by the time you make it to the crash site.

If anyone wants to fly the Squirt "Wings Across America" with me let me know. Weekend weather looks bad so I will be flying Thursday at 4pm in Ogden and possibly Saturday around noon if weather permits.

More info on the Squirt.

Today I had a wicked cool experience.

I was coming home way to the West by the trees @ 20' or less when I hit a gust and it flipped me into knife edge fast. I circled and was getting darn near flipped over and was not climbing but gaining 20' and then loosing it on the other half of the circle. Then with one well turned circle I was 50' above the trees, and then from there it was 2 big turns till I was getting crazy high. I was flopping around so low for soo long Finch saw me scrapping and was impressed, even though it was his B Day, at the climb. What a rush to be in such an elevator.

To say today was killer good conditions would be an understatement!!!!!

Yo AD, this is aluminum and would be perfect for chairs and coolers.

Let me know, it is @ my house so if we are out of room, we can just throw it on.

PS, I miss my baby!!!!! Take good care of her tonight AD.
